The Republic of Universal State Formula is a massive, cultured nation, remarkable for its unlimited-speed roads, sprawling nuclear power plants, and compulsory military service. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 2.624 billion citizens of Universal State Formula are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The medium-sized, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Industry, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of City Prime. The average income tax rate is 95.3%.

The frighteningly efficient Universal State Formula economy, worth a remarkable 1,185 trillion Standard Monetary Units a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is an enormous, deeply entrenched, broadly diversified black market in Information Technology, Arms Manufacturing, Retail, and Woodchip Exports. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is an amazing 451,924 Standard Monetary Units, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 1,689,036 per year while the poor average 84,689, a ratio of 19.9 to 1.

Dozens of viewers go online to hear whether a comma has been added to Clause 5 in Subsection B of Law 58375, signatures have been replaced with illegible scribbles, shanty towns are forming in the suburbs of major cities, and those who investigate UFOs tend to wake up delirious on abandoned roads. Crime is totally unknown. Universal State Formula's national animal is the Leviathan, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Universal State Formula is ranked 3,836th in the world and 148th in The North Pacific for Largest Insurance Industry, scoring 7,158.1 on the Risk Expulsion Effectiveness Rating.
